Storyline

Mike, a Chicago police officer, meets fourth-grade teacher Molly one day when he speaks at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting and they fall in love, thanks in part to their mutual love of pie and the desire to resist it. Both face challenges in their quest to lose weight -- Molly from her slender sister and mother and Mike at the diner where he frequently eats. But having found each other, they will support each other as they try to achieve their goals, be it weight loss or Molly's decision to quit teaching and pursue her dream as a writer.

Fun and refreshing, but a little dirty
19 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this show!I wasn't sure how it would work out. People have such preconceived notions about fat people that they could/would/might/ shy away from this show. Fat and thin alike. I hope you don't. This show is really very witty and uber-entertaining. Mike and Molly are fat people who know they are fat and yet are still comfortable with who they are. Not even most thin people I know can say that. M&M know that being overweight isn't the best thing for a body to be, so they address in every show the Overeaters' Anonymous angle giving the value of a healthy lifestyle it's due. I think that that's an important part of the entire story. However, just as important is the fact that these two fat people are confident, well-spoken, easy-going, comfortable-in-their-own-skin kind of people. Because of that, they are sexy. Nothing is more compelling that self-confidence. I think the writers and crew are trying to show that. If they're not, that's what they are showing - even if it is by accident. These two actors are confident in who they are and that bleeds into their characters throughout. They easily laugh at themselves in a fondly deprecating manner and are no fools to their shortcomings, but they don't apologize for who they are either. Right On!

I am a lady of substance myself and that's how I am. Love me fat or don't waste my time. It's nice to see this coming across in a show whose premise could easily be a sloppy mess, but ends up being crisp and new and clean. Congratulations!!!!!!
